The Happy Little Stampers challenge this month is Christmas and Tree. Luckily I made good on my promise to start my Christmas cards in July this year so I have a card to use for their challenge. Okay, this is where I confess I started this card last year at a Stampin Up workshop. Somehow it didn't look finished to me so I set it aside and just found it as I was cleaning.
At the workshop we started with a stamp from the enduring Stampin Up Lovely As a Tree set. We used the dryer sheet technique to make it a glittery snowy day (can you see it in the picture?) and a silver ribbon for embellishment. To "finish" the card, I cut it down and layered the panel on green because I thought it needed to be grounded. My friend Lola loaned me a vertical Happy Holidays; if it had been my own stamp, I would have unmounted it and used the Misti. As it was, I used a positioner but still it was crooked. I had to cut it off and went with this sentiment from Inkadinkado which is much easier to layer on.
Now can I start some other Christmas cards this month??
Thank you for stopping in.
